MacLACHLAN, Jean Annabelle
At Saint Michael's Hospital on Monday July 10, 2006. We celebrate the life and mourn the loss of Jean Annabelle MacLACHLAN, devoted sister to Joan GREEN and Joy ANDERSON and brothers-in-law Stuart GREEN and Cecil ANDERSON. Loving aunt to Lyndsay GREEN (Hank INTVEN), Bruce GREEN (Cheryl), Jeff GREEN and Donald ANDERSON (Lisa BRUCE.) Much loved great-aunt to Lauren and Andrea INTVEN, Brandon, Christopher and Taylor GREEN, Max and Alexa GREEN, and Tegan and Elizabeth BRUCE. Jean will also be deeply missed by cousins Helen and Ralph MULLIGAN, their children Judith and Brian and families, as well as her many Friends. Jean's life of 89 years was one of great accomplishment and richness. When she retired after a 44-year career with Reckitt and Colman she had been the first woman Manager of Consumer Services and held the longest tenure of any woman in the company. She appeared on radio and television and gave demonstrations across the country to entice people to liven up their cooking with spices and seasonings. She felt that her encouragement made people more adventurous and contributed to the improvement of Canadian cuisine. She was also known as 'Mavis Trill' in an advice column she wrote for bird lovers. When she retired, the company newsletter described her as a 'Ray of Sunshine'. It said, 'What's important is the professional career and the accomplishments that this sweetheart of a lady was able to build in an era when Gloria Steinem was still making mud pies in her sandbox and the women's movement ended at the Parent-Teacher Association refreshment table.' As it said, 'Jean was a charmer.' She was known for her outrageous hats, her award-winning jams and chutneys, and her love of people. She had many happy times as a member of the Women's Advertising Club of Toronto, of which she was the President from 1962-63. She was proud of her service in the Canadian Women's Army Corp Reserve in World War 2. Her last years were happy ones thanks to the kindness and devotion shown her by the staff at Meighen Manor. At her request no funeral service will be held. Donations in Jean's memory may be made to the Salvation Army.
